The original “Lignum vitae” (Guaiacum) is Latin for “wood of life”,  and derives from its medicinal resin used to treat a variety of medical conditions from coughs to arthritis, and chips of the wood can also be used to brew a tea. Lignum vitae is one of the numerous durable, hard, and dense woods referred to as ironwood. On the Janka Scale of Hardness, which measures hardness of woods, lignum vitae ranks highest of the trade woods, registering at 4500 lbf.

    Dang Tang Broke Again

    Woodcraft replaced the first one that broke at the tang. Within a couple of months, the replacement broke in the same spot. The tang is just not big enough for this size gouge. Spend the money and by a higher quality too.

    Good beginer roughing gouge.

    Was a gift to a beginner turner. Nice tool handle length. The tang should be heaver.

    Nice Overpriced Tool

    It's a gouge - Works well, holds an edge fairly well, I'm pleased with it. Would have liked it better if it had cost [$].

    Made in China

    No where does it say made in China in the catalog. I found that the HSS does not hold an edge very long. It would be better to purchase a English or American made HSS tool. The extra cost would be worth it.

    [...]

    [...] It claims to be Professional Quality High Speed Steel.The Wood River gouge does not hold an edge as long as other English made High Speed Steel tools. Therefore it requires more often sharpening and without saying a shorter life than a better tool. [...]

    fatigue fracture early in life

    Worked well until the metal fractured at the tang. This may have been a defect in the metal, but it hadn't been used much and was not dropped or abused.
